Ernest Borgnine plays Rex Page, an old man who is bitter about never becoming famous and having lived a life without any meaning. After suffering a stroke, he ends up in a nursing home staffed by Latin American immigrants. Put off by the situation, Rex focuses his energy on getting out, which places him at odds with the Latino workers. However, their relationship takes on new meaning when it is discovered that he once shook hands with Vicente Fernandez, a Mexican singer, producer and actor idolized throughout Latin culture. The employees soon begin to treat Rex like the celebrity he's always dreamed of being.Written by
Deserves to be seen.... If this was an Eastwood film it would be part of life... I love Clint no doubt... I also Love Ernest, Burt Reynolds and they just went away with no one recognising their final efforts... Like The last movie Star /with reynolds/ this is a last in the line for an oldie great Bonifide movie star... At such and old age Borgnaine was still wanting to entertain and full of life until the end... Great film that should be seen by a wider audience.
